What we do

During the last years citizens in the Middle East have increasingly been demanding active participation in decision making with regards to their political and social future. Nevertheless, the outcome of revolutions, movements, and transformations are yet unknown. Many fear instability and new authoritarianism, but the crucial role of civil societies in the region in this process is clear. This applies to Palestine and Jordan as well.
In cooperation with local Partners in the West Bank, Gaza, and Jordan, hbs supports projects which aim to encourage political democratic reform actors and media producers, in order to increase opportunities for social and political participation, and reforms. In all its activities, the hbs emphasises the special importance of gender democracy.
